Karen & the Sorrows are queer country trailblazers who have been featured in Billboard and Rolling Stone. Their newest song “Guaranteed Broken Heart” has a somber vibe to it. It’s authentically country-Americana in it’s instrumentation choices and styles. There’s a guitar riffing and a shuffling drum groove that keeps the song feeling very alive. Vocally it’s stunning, covering a lot of range. The vocal has just enough twang to feel country but not feel overdone or gimmicky at all.
I happen to be one of the lucky one’s who got to catch Karen & The Sorrows performing live in Brooklyn as part of a Pride after party at Union Hall. I highly recommend going to see them perform if they come around to your city!
